After retiring and moving back to Portland, Rich Moran wanted to get involved. He had always been interested in the tax process, so when he came across an opportunity to help people with their taxes, he jumped.

“The CA$H Maine tax preparer volunteer opportunity presented itself. It looked interesting, so I tried it, and I’ve been doing it ever since,” says Rich. “It is a great way to volunteer and give back. The people who receive these services are greatly appreciative and that makes me feel good.”

Volunteer and Help Return $1 Million to Cumberland County Households!

CA$H Greater Portland (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope), a program of United Way of Greater Portland in partnership with Goodwill Industries of Northern New England, is looking for volunteers for our free income tax preparation events.

CA$H helps individuals and families achieve long-term financial stability—our free tax preparation events are a money saving and educational resource for the community. Did you know up to $4 million may be left unclaimed every year by individuals in Cumberland County who do not know they qualify for the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)? The average EITC returned to qualifying clients is $1,200.

We are now recruiting volunteers for all positions: Tax preparers, Intake and Asset Guides, Interpreters, Schedulers and Greeters. Please click on the position you are interested in for a full description.
